The Mountain Goats Preview New Album with Second Single ‘Get Famous’

    The Mountain Goats have shared a new single from their upcoming album, Getting Into Knivestitled ‘Get Famous’. Listen to it below.

    “If I told you all how much fun we had making this one you wouldn’t even believe me, but we hope it comes through,” singer John Darnielle said in a statement. As a press release notes, the jaunty tune finds him singing the chorus – “Get famous! You should be famous/ Go on and get famous/ I want you to be famous” – “as if it were a curse.”

    Getting into Knives, which marks the band’s second album of 2020 following Songs for Pierre Chuvin, comes out October 23rd via Merge. The 13-track LP was produced, mixed, and engineered by Matt Ross-Spang and recorded at Sam Phillips Recording in Memphis, Tennessee between March 1–6, with assistance from Wesley Graham. Previously, The Mountain Goats previewed the album with the lead single ‘As Many Candles As Possible’.
